BEAMINSTER are targeting their first win of the season and fancy their chances at promoted side Compton House on Saturday (1pm), captain Chris Park admits.

Looking to bounce back from the 149-run loss to Portland last week, Park’s men tackle a House side skittled for 66 at Stalbridge on Saturday.

Speaking to the Bridport News, Park insisted the fixture was a big opportunity for victory.

“They got skittled pretty quickly, so they’re definitely going to be one of the teams we target,” he said.

“We’ve got people out again, so I don’t know what side we’ll put out. I think we’re going to be able to beat them, we just need to shore up on the basics.

“If we do that, we’ve got a good chance of beating them.”

Beaminster are without Rich Runyard, Ben Padwick, Ollie Bareham, Paul Edwards and Adam Moss, meaning spaces are freed up for Jack Handford, Will Moss, Simon Jones and Nick Hollely.

“We’re very fortunate,” Park added. “If I could get my full 11 out I’d be a very happy man and we’d be a decent side.

“As soon as university finishes, I think we’ll be OK. It’s tough but in a couple of weeks we’ll have a full-strength side.

Beaminster: Park, Golledge, W Moss, Hillier, Baker, Handford, Jones, Edmunds, Fry, Hollely, AN Other.
